Team development

Post by adimetrius »

BlackBox is a big enough program to have been developed by a team of programmers.
I was wondering if Oberon Microsystems was using any team development tools, and how their process was organized. The current BlackBox lacks any such tools, save maybe for the Compare Texts command. Modern-day mainstream uses git, diffs, merges etc, and we in the Russian-speaking BB community always get a surprised reaction from people who 'peep into' BB from the mainstream.

Does anyone have any reminiscense about what was used in OmInc? Or maybe even in ETH when System 3 was in active development by a number of graduate and postgraduate students.

There was an extensive discussion on the use of Git for Oberon-based systems back in 2020 on the ETH Oberon Mailing list. It was titled [Oberon] all in one git tree and it starts here: ... 15285.html

I only ever consider using a system like Git when working on an application that is bigger / more complex than Git itself.
